Khronos has formed a liaison agreement with the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) in the interest of jointly advancing open geospatial standards related to AR and VR, distributed simulation, and 3D content services. The liaison will let Khronos and OGC assess standards in these fields as well as identify future potential standards that will facilitate interoperability and hardware capabilities of relevant data sharing and analysis. The collaboration will occur through working groups, forums, workshops, committee activities, etc., and OGC will adopt Khronos standards where appropriate.
The Khronos Group was at SIGGRAPH Asia this year with talks from several Khronos members including NVIDIA and Unity, as well as a talk from the Khronos Melbourne Chapter Leader. Neil Trevett, President of the Khronos Group, gave an overview of the Khronos ecosystem. If you are interested in learning more about Khronos standards for 3D, VR, AR and Neural Networks, be sure to take a few minutes to read Neil's presentation.
